2pac's First Appearance


Tupac began his film career with a little known appearance in a Chevy Chase film entitled 'Nothing But Trouble,' which also starred Demi Moore. He appeared in this film alongside Digital Underground.
'Tupac later played a starring role as Bishop, a troubled teen, in the move 'Juice.' He went on to star with Janet Jackson in the John Singleton produced 'Poetic Justice,' which allowed Tupac to show a softer side, a side which few had seen. 'Above the Rim,' 'Bullet,' 'Gridlock'd'. and 'Gang Related' all followed, proving 'Pac as much more then just a talented musician, but also as an actor.

Menace II Society and Higher Learning were two more movies that Tupac was supposed to play lead roles in, but circumstances did not allow. While on the set of Menace II Society in it's early stages, Tupac had a conflict with one of the Hughes brothers, who were producing the movie. The conflict lead to Tupac assaulting and spitting in the face of said brother, and he lost the role. After hearing about this, John Singleton, mentioned above, decided to drop Tupac for the role in Higher Learning, fearing the controversy that would surround the choice.
